The Panthers kept giving the Seahawks chances, and finally, they took them.
A 43-yard touchdown from Russell Wilson to Jermaine Kearse was the only touchdown of the second half, helping the Seahawks to an East Coast win.
The Panthers appeared to be on their way to a potential go-ahead score, when Seahawks safety Earl Thomas forced a DeAngelo Williams fumble late, allowing Wilson to run out the clock.
That kind of black-cat luck will only bring back bad memories for the Panthers. They’ve gotten off to 2-8 starts each of the last two seasons under coach Ron Rivera.
This won’t help, and now moves their record to 2-13 in games decided by a touchdown or less.
Wilson was a clean 25-of-33 for 320 yards, making plays at the right moments throughout the day. The Panthers gave them too many chances throughout the day, and even though both defenses played well, the Seahawks made the last two plays of the day, and that was the difference.
